Studies in American Tort Law

Front Cover
Carolina Academic Press, 1994 - Law - 996 pages
Studies in American Tort Law introduces students to -- but is careful not to overwhelm them with -- law and economics. At appropriate junctures, economic issues are explored, as in connection with the negligence balancing test and the materials on damages, nuisance, and strict liability. The goal is not to view all of tort law through an economic lens, but to employ economic analysis when it is particularly useful. This approach allows professors from the law-and-economics school to use the materials in the text as a starting point for classroom discussions; those who eschew economic analysis can allow the economic commentary to stand on its own.
